||Today, most office workers are equipped with personal computers connected to the Internet. The objective of this project was to examine how organizations and individuals perceive this new technology, the strain caused by information overload on employees and how they cope with this strain, as well as to evaluate supporting communication tools aimed at limiting this strain. Five studies on supporting communication tools, information organizational culture and psychological stress at the workplace due to the new media were conducted. On the basis of the findings, a training concept was developed for helping employees to cope with stress caused by this new technology.
